Pacemaker Follow-Up Observation Mobile App
The Pacemaker Follow-Up Observations mobile app was designed to check functionality after pacemaker insertion.
How does it work?
This important process is necessary during post-op and follow-up visits to ensure that the pacemaker implantation process was successful and that the pacemaker is working as expected.
Using a smartphone or tablet, medical professionals can track pacemaker follow-up observations to ensure that the device is maintaining proper heart rate and heart rhythm. The user friendly app includes several items to check for, including ensuring the pulse generator is functioning as expected, that the heart muscle is adapting to the pacemaker and that the ventricular rate is at the normal expected level. Failure to verify the results after a pacemaker insertion can lead to chest pain, increased blood pressure and in the worst cases, complete heart blockages and heart failure. The pacemaker implantation observations app, in coordination with remote monitoring, can help ensure that the pacemaker procedure was successful, dramatically increasing the odds of survival and normal heart rhythm and heart rate for the patient.
